For the seventh season in a row, the Miami Heat will be among the NBA teams celebrating Noche Latina in March. The Heat will break out their "El Heat" uniforms and honor Latin American players and fans.

The team announced Thursday that Noche Latina will span three games: March 6th game (against the Orlando Magic), March 8th (against the Philadelphia 76ers) and March 10th (against the Indiana Pacers). Visiting teams will wear their white home uniforms, with Miami in black uniforms with "El Heat" accross the front.

The Heat will also spotlight South Florida's cultural vibrancy with music performances and other promotions and giveaways inside the American Airline Arena.

Miami is currently sitting atop the Eastern Conference with a 41-14 record. Winners of 12 straight (and 10 straight at home), the Heat are tied with Denver and San Antonio for the fewest home losses in the NBA (Miami is 25-3 at home).
